Opera Would Cost Facebook Over $1 Billion: Analysts

Facebook

OSLO (Reuters) - Opera Software would cost Facebook over $1 billion as competition from Google and others could push up the price tag, analysts said on Tuesday, as takeover talk pushed the shares up as much as 26 percent on Tuesday.

Senh: This sounds like a short-term thing if Facebook decides to buy Opera because most people will be using smartphones in the long term. Opera Mini is great if you don't have broadband connection (3G or 4G) or if you're using a simple cell phone.
